Day #4: Hopscotch and Roast Beef
Emma and I enjoyed some time outside this morning. When she went to school I shopped for the "spring fling" party on Thursday (yes, I thought March 11th was Wednesday -
I'm really together!). By the way, I kinda cheated on my own challenge. I bought ketchup for $1.49 today and also stopped at Subway for a veggie delite 6-incher for $2.92. Is it cheating if I fessed up? Oh, well, I still haven't run to the dairy, so at this point I'm still under $100. I also ordered a few Easter outfits from the Gap, but that doesn't count, right?
This afternoon was perfect for a nice four-mile run and then it was time to finally wash my truck. It's amazing how a little thing can make such a big difference. That, and I scrubbed my kitchen floor and sanitized my bathroom with lots of bleach. I waited until I was sure we were free from our viruses, don't worry, I spot-cleaned after every occurence, this was a top-to-bottom cleaning). All in all, a pretty productive day (my standards are pretty low!).
Tonight's dinner: Roast beef with mashed potatoes (and not enough gravy) with steamed peas. We also had cornbread with butter and honey.
